. but there is some things that are absolutely stunning, that this happened on 9/11, and the fbi at some point was sent in to investigate. and then on october 26, 6 weeks later, foreign policy magazine went to the consulate, went to the cia annex. they found a draft of two letters. and letters that they have no idea thisf they were ever, ever sent anywhere. but a draft of two letters that the fbi never picked up when they were there. and two draft, talk about this fact that that day, they saw some member of the bolivian police force across the street in the upstairs, taking pictures inside the compound and they were worried and concerned. why that evidence was not seized by the fbi, i don't know. another thing that happened, david ignatius of the washington post, met with the cia. the cia gave them a timeline as to what happened. this is what is new for me. number 1, it appears that the last two who were killed were not killed until about 5:00 hirt in the morning, which fwaifs another hour for the -- which gives another hour for the united states to take military action. but secondly, let me r
of the fbi, how the fbi could have been investigating it this long, and yet, you know, general petraeus was involved, director petraeus was involved. for me if it was the fbi director had the obligation to tell the president or the national security council at the earliest state so it seems to be going on for severalonths and, yet, now it appears that they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up, and you have this type of investigation. the fbi investigating emails, the emails leading to the cia director and taking four months to find out that the cia director was involved. i have real questions about this. i think a timeline has to be looked at and analyzed to see what happened. now, as far as leaving the hole, general petraeus was an outstanding general, outstanding, dedicated public official. he is going to be missed. as i'm sure senator mendez would agree, no one is irreplaceable in government, but he will have at least a short-term impact any time you lose someone like general petraeus's stature, especially

of the extramarital affair he revealed in resigning from his post, a decision that came under the pressure from an f.b.i. investigation that threatened to make things even uglier, according to an intelligence community source who spoke to politico on the condition of anonymity. so tell us a little bit more, josh gerstein of the politico, tell us about this investigation by the f.b.i. and what's been the fallout so far in washington about the announcement that the general was going to resign from the c.i.a. guest: well, we still don't know too much of the detail about what was going on with the f.b.i. there are a lot of reports out there, and, in fact, it is true that part of this investigation by the f.b.i. had to do with the question of whether somebody was improperly accessing petraeus' personal email accounts. you know, however, the sources that we spoke to said that wasn't really the entirety of the investigation or the thing that really got it rolling. but at some point, for whatever reason, the f.b.i. became concerned that somebody was getting into his account. now, you can see a variety of reason
response approach being have allowed the f.b.i. to acess the site sooner than the 24 days it would eventually take. but the most senior people of government worked on it. secretary of defense chairman of the joint cheats and secretary of state and senator john mccain looks at this and said clearly the administration acted this way to hide something. >> this is a classic scandal where almost every day and another shoe drops. i think it could be bad as water gate and one of our veterans said no one died in water gate. they have a point. >> yesterday white house press secretary jay carny said the president is anticipating the results of the f.b.i.'s investigation. back to you. >> gretchen: just to carry this story further. we saw the spokesperson for the state department said that the highest level of people were involved in this. i am not so sure that is a good admission to make. if the highest people were involved including the secretary of state and secretary of defense and possibly the vice-president and president, and all of this happened on their watch. i am not sure it is good

folks from the state department, the fbi. everybody there was asked do you know who made these changes? and nobody knew. the only entity that reviewed the talking points that was not there was the white house. >> independent senator joe leiberman said today a watergate style committee is not needed to figure out answers to the benghazi attacks. >> the senator went on to sort of suggest in very light handed way that he's not quite sure that the white house is telling the truth on this whole thing. all right. doug in washington. thanks. >> well, weeks since super storm sandy slammed on shore and parts of new york city are still struggling to recover. we are live in lower manhattan with the latest on recovery efforts. anna. >> good evening, heather. residents, we just had one come up to us and say she's not going to have power for some eight months. but many of these businesses and residential towers still don't have power or water or heat and don't have reopen dates yet. we are in the south street seaport area, a very historical area, buildings built in the 17 runs and 1800s and normally
into the circumstances surroundings the circumstances and why they didn't receive any advance notice by the f.b.i. back to journal editorial report. i'll see you you at the top of the hour. around,guys. ♪ >> welcome back to the journal editorial report. coming up. the president's policies, taxes to immigration. tuesday was a good day for democrats, but not always for unions, big labor suffered some big losses on ballot measures across the country and we'll tell you where, but first, i'm joined by wall street columnist, peggy noonan, why do you think that mitt romney lost? >> i think that already we know some of the usual suspects even days after the election, the get out the vote effort on the democratic side was, appears to have been a master piece that will probably have impact on national elections going into the future. republicans have a lot to learn there. and there have been demographic changes in america. at the end of the day, i think my surprise about the election was that it was not so close in a way everybody was thinking we'd be up until four in the morning or counting ohio votes for tw
not terrorists as alleged by the government and then no crime would have occurred if not for the role of the fbi informant. after hearing from prosecutors and defense attorneys on monday, a three-judge panel of the second u.s. circuit court of appeals said it would rule at a later date. an african-american muslim and 10-year veteran of the u.s. army has come forward to reveal he has been placed on the u.s. no- fly list without explanation. sp to the guardian, the former air force service member saaadiq long says he has been visited -- prevented from visiting his ailing mother in oklahoma after learning the department of homeland security has barred him from flying to the united states. long had bought a ticket to oklahoma shortly after learning his mother's congestive heart condition had worsened. a federal appeals court heard the case monday in a case challenging arizona law that bans abortion after 20 weeks gestation or 18 weeks post fertilization, except in medical emergencies. abortion-rights advocates call the measure among the most extreme of the more than six similar bans across the unite
't that stunning that months later that they should be coming in? where was the fbi? but i think the major point is that the president of the united states wanted to say that osama bin laden is gone and al-qaeda is on the run. al-qaeda is not on the run. they are all over iraq. they are pouring in to syria. they have taken over northern mali. i'm telling you it is because the weak and feckless leadership by this president that al-qaeda is not only not on the run or decimated they are far, far stronger than they were four years ago. >> judge jeanine: and senator, i think events of of the past month or so have made that clear. senator, you been in politics for many years around all of us believe you our government. we want to believe our government leaders. have you lost faith, have you lost faith like so many people have in the word of the white house and what clearly are lies? they knew they were lies at the time? how does it make you feel? >> makes me feel terrible. makes me even feel worse that i lost. but when the president of the united states says things that are patently false, when goes t
one ounce of marijuana. it doesn't happen. anybody knows that the fed, the fbi, they are not doing street busts, corner bursts. this would have to go into effect by the distributors. so what's going to happen is they will try to set up distribution program then the federal government will take whatever actions they are going to take. but here's the rub. this is already going on in california with medical marijuana. there is no provision in the federal law for medical marijuana. they are allowing california and the state government to distribute medical marijuana. holder wrote a letter saying we'll strongly oppose this and prosecute this. they have done nothing. my answer to you, your honor is let's look at past behavior to predict future behavior. megyn: how can they do it? >> how can the feds do it? megyn: how can colorado thumb its nose? >> you are italian, you know. megyn: i think the thumb changes everything. you don't know what i'm trying to say. sorry. jonna, how can colorado pass a law like this when you have got a federal law that says pot is illegal? >> they are running a
on the specifics of the investigation. the fbi has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. and i'm going to let director mueller and others examine those protocols, and make some statements to the public generally. i do want to emphasize what i said before. general petraeus had an extraordinary career. deserved this country with great distinction in iraq, in afghanistan, and as head of the cia. by his own assessment, he did not meet the standards that he felt were necessary as the director of cia with respect to this personal matter that he is now dealing with, with his family, and with his wife. and it's on that basis that he tendered his resignation, and it's on that basis that i accepted it. but i want to emphasize that from my perspective at least, he has provided this country and extraordinary service. we are safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done, and my main hope right now is that he and his family are able to move on, and that this instead of being -- this into a being a single side note on what has been otherwise been an extraordinary career. [inaudible] >> you kn
. because yesterday the cia acting director at 10:00 a.m. apparently blamed the fbi for changing the language and the guidance and the talking points. at 4:00 in the afternoon the cia acting director came back and said it was at cia after all. what explains that? >> this stuff is coming from the white house. they are hoping this will go away. i don't happen to be one of the senators she cares to talk about and maybe it's because while opposed to her from her position as ambassador of the united nations and nothing could change my mind on that. bill: based on that answer it appears you are willing to take that answer higher than susan rice with it comes to benghazi. >> this will go down as the biggest coverup in history. they all knew it. they are hoping to have it go beyond the election date which it did. but people are not going to forget it. the administration deliberately covered this and misrepresented what happened in benghazi threatened up in the both of four people. one of whom was a good friend of mine, ambassador stevens. bill: the biggest coverup in american history. >>
been no formal response. and within the last few minutes, greta van susteren has reported that the fbi is now on the ground in tunisia to question the only known suspect in custody and significantly this comes after the intervention of republican senator lindsey graham who wrote tot tunisian government requesting questioning why there was a lack of access to the suspect. jenna: senator graham spoke to jon yesterday and mentioned his frustration with that. interesting to watch that side of the story. >> reporter: one point on that. this really begs the question if a senator could intervene with the tunisian government six weeks after the attack and at least a week after the suspect was in custody, why was it that apparently the white house or the justice department didn't take the same course of action? jenna: sounds like a good question. jon will be discussing this a little bit now. great reporting as always, catherine. thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. jon: these brand new revelations could bring more political fallout just four-days before the election. let's bring in jonah gol
states and defeated an incumbent president by a larger margin than fbi and -- at tiahrt and herbert hoover. he did among the various subgroups the women, african-americans, asians, hispanics, 18 to 29 and so forth and you overly his performance in 1980 over this electorate, he loses by the same amount that rahm needed -- romney did. this is a long-term problem for the party. the country is becoming more diverse. of the country's aging, and this is going to present some challenges for the party. i am relatively optimistic that they can find ways to build bridges to those voters that they need to get about it now. >> ralph you talk about demographics and we have other panelists we have ever heard from yet but since you were leaving early i want to ask you haven't mentioned the issue free of the conversation and the christian conservative community. it does seem to me to have a role. can you talk about foreign policy or the individuals and how the christian community is now with the conservative christian community is looking at those issues? >> we are still looking at a post-election
trust in the fbi, cia, at home and security. i have complete trust within the confines of their agency walls. if you look at all of the botched terrorist plots that have been occurring since 9/11, it is absolutely amazing what our agencies are doing to keep us safe. who i do not trust is the white house suits who apparently put a spin on the nsa's official briefs and input on worldwide events. i believe the white house puts a political spin on everything that comes to the president, to the secretary of state. then to the american people. it was 9/11 when we had benghazi going down. that is a data i think the president would rather have nothing going down. apparently there was something going down. with petraeus, is it not ironic that he is now being the scrutinized over these extramarital affairs when he is about to testify in regards to what happened in benghazi. >>let's get a couple more comments on facebook and twitter. thank you for all of your calls. coming up next, congressman ron paul, a republican of texas set to retire. he will talk about that, the fiscal cliff, and the latest
.i.a. or the fbi, one or the other deleted any reference to possible terrorist activity at the time because they didn't want to trigger or let people know that's what they were looking into but again she's not the one that wrote the talking points or edited the talking points. she also said at the time look, these may not prove to be true down the road but this is what we've got so far. >> that's right. my impression of this is yours which is that she read from prepared talking points and delivered messages that had been vetted and developed by the intelligence community in what was a chaotic and rapidly developing situation. it became clear fairly quickly that the attack on the benghazi consulate was a premeditated effort by terrorists. the president used the word terrorist actions the next day. and this isn't something -- this isn't iran-contra. this wasn't concealed for six months or a year. there wasn't complete disavow of any knowledge. this was the intelligence community saying we shouldn't be out there publicly in the fi
by asking the former fbi director to lead an investigation, which yielded 119 recommendations on how to enhance our internal policies and practices. we have already implemented more than one-third of these recommendations and many more are nearing completion. we remain committed to this progress because we believe it is making us a better, stronger university. we are committed to the fight against child abuse. central to this is the newly established center for the protection of children, based at the hershey children's hospital. and our ongoing partnership with the pennsylvania coalition against rape. we completed a conference and child sexual abuse. this forum brought together leaders and experts from law enforcement, a pediatric medicine, prevention research, an education. we formed the penn state network for child protection and well- being, comprised of 35 faculty members with interdisciplinary expertise. the aim is to accelerate the pace of discovery by linking research and practice and to build the network with additional researchers, practitioners, and teachers. the director
the work of the imdwration service. >> you were turning finger prints over to the f.b.i. >> we worked with ice and turned over people when they were arrested. that is the responsibility of the federal government. we can't put that on the towns anywhere in this country. >> you can have the last word on this topic. >> there are three or four different issues. the original question was about rhode island and the drain on the resources. i've looked at that and the drain on the resources is pretty minimal because the number of undock meanted here who utilize the resources this gentleman is talking about is small, only in the dozens. so i'm not going to worry about the drain in rhode island because the numbers don't bear that out. >> what do they contribute to the economy? >> a lot of them have jobs. just because their undock meanted doesn't mean they don't work. i have a good friend who i won't name who is self-plode. he employees several americans and makes well over 100,000 a year but i have no problem with that sort of thing. i have no problem with the idea just because you're undock me
diplomatic facility has been under investigation by the f.b.i. it is part of a broader investigation by the accountability review board set up at the president's direction by the secretary of state. no one is more interested in getting to the bottom of what happened than the president is. no one is more interested in bringing to justice those who took the lives of four americans than the president and he is very interested in having the results of those investigations provided to him and the american public. >> none of that is going to talk about the? >> the president has been forth right about when he found out about it that he directed actions be taken immediately to provide support for our embassy facilities not just in benghazi but in tripoli and around the world and every action he's taken was driven by -- >> there was a 5:00 meeting but what about after that? >> the president was made aware of developments throughout the evening and days ensuing so i'm not sure what you're question is. >> there were all [indiscernible] >> when you talk about military we've been answering questi
